THOSE UNCOLLECTED TAXES- Tbe l)etulng Headlight recently commented on an article in the Lib eral relating to uncollected taxes and gravely announces that the Lin Kit al was wrong. Hy the way, If due credence Is glveu the Headlight the LiDKitAL never Is right, but that has nothing to do with the case. The LuiKitAL claimed that a great deal of the proprrty on which taxes were de linquent wa not In the county, that It should not have been placed on tbe tax rolls, but wa put there by lazy assessors, who had copied their pre decessor's rolls. Tho Headlight, with a devotion that Is admirable, but with an utter lack of discretion, stands up nobly for Its friends and relatives. It passes a few wordsof encomium on John Adair, but poor old John is dead, aud so it was necessary to waste but little time and space on hiiti, and then rushes madly to the defense of George W. Miles, and states that the errors hi Miles' last assessment amounted to less than $100, according to a state ment filed by Collector Laird. The LniEiiAL supposed, of course,these fig ures were accurate, but to get the to tal amountof uncollected taxes wrote to Collector Laird for the figures and then learned the Headlight lacked seventy-five per cent of telling the trulli. This, however, is not at all surpris ing. When a democratic newspaper attempts to praise a democratic olll clal and lacksouly seventy-five percent of telling the truth it is beating the average. Neither the New Mexican nor the Independent Democrat ever made such a record. The report filed by Collector Laird with the board of county commission ers regarding uncollectible taxes, as found by him in his endeavor to col lect the same, is as follows: Uncollectible taxes of 1888.. $3,072 53 J8S9. . 2.471 92 " " 18U0.. 4,788 28 " " 1891.. 1,570 80 " " 1892. . 2,4.'J0 05 Errors and erronlous assess ments in 1S93.... 1,333 45 Errors and double assess ments in 1894 414 CO The taxes of 1891 should bo rebated about 23 per cent account of the illegal levy of that year, the rate being changed from 21 mills to 15.45 mills, amounting to. . 2,07G 99 Likewise the amount charg ed for 1892, the rate of tax ation was changed trom 23.10 mills to 17.15 mills, amounting to 5,01S 26 Total , $23,185 99 On January 1, 1895 there were un collected taxes as follows: YK A It 1887... 1888... 1889... 18Ü0... 1891... 1892. .. 1893... 1894... COUNTY $3,5154 00 4,084 02 2,750 34 5,070 53 4,893 72 12,703 80 12,180 58 29,318 00 TEHIU TOlt Y YOTAL $1,410 2,140 2,079 3,825 3,094 6,537 11,748 18,300 13 $4,980 24 87 34 14 70 10 90 02 0,231 49 4,835 08 8,895 07 7,988 42 19,300 99 23,929 48 47,018 02 Total. $74,031 74 $49,143 83 4123,780 59 Tbe taxes of 1893 have been twice set over since the assessment, by legis lative action, as a consequence the taxes of 1893 did not become delin. quent till July 1, 1895, two years after their levy. The taxes of 1894, the first half, were by legislative action set over six mouths, together with all other taxes then due. The law changing the mode of col lecting taxes made no provision for the advertisement of delinquent taxes but the collector, under the advice of the district attorney, advertised the delinquents, but within a few days after the publication oí the list the legislature passed tho act postponing the date of payment, which rendered the publication valueless. The statement made by tbe collctor to the couuty commissioners covers only the errors, double assessments and uncollectible taxes that bo has al ready found, but does not, by any means, cover all of the uncollectible taxes. The county commissioners should examine tbe rolls, cut out all that are When Others Fall Hood's Rarsaparllla build up the shat tered aystera by giving vigorous action to the digestive organs, creating an appetite and purifying tho blood.

Neither the tax returns nor the tax rolls show the brands of any cattle, sheep or horses, so It they changed hands they cou'd not be traced to the present owners. Asa consequence the collector cannot find a great deal of the personal property assessed, such as cattle, horses, etc. The present assessor has placed on every return of cattle, horses, sheep, etc., the brands and car marks, so that hereafter they luay be traced without much trouble. The Headlight makes a good hit at owners of property on which the taxes have not, been paid, when It says that "a day of reckoning is coming." Dlf trict Attorney Harllee says he will en force collection In all cases in which suit has to be brought in court, while Collector Laird says he will distrain and sell all property on which the tax es have not been paid after tbo first of October. With the land descriptions added, every precaution taken to avoid er rors and the elimination of all double assessments the roll of 1895 will be the best ever made In the county. Next year It will be as near perfect as hu man Ingenuity ean make It. New Mexican: The Optic Is un questionably correct In Its contention that the study of English gratumer, with a view to the practical applica tion of the rulas thereof to the speak ing and writing of accurate English, Is shamefully neglected in the schools of the country. Even many college grad uates often set at defiance tho sim plest laws of the language In their writing. Usually they know better, but carelessly neglect to utilize their knowledge. If they realized how per nicious their Influence Is, surely they would meud their English Eagle: ' Some of the residents of Dona Ana county are beginning to talk seriously or removing the county seat from Las Cruces. The county seat was never legally moved from Mesilla, the books and papers having been removed to Lus Cruces lu the night from Mesilla, which place had been the county seat of Dona Aua county for many years. Some of the good people down there are of the opinion that Las Cruces Is not the proper place for the county seat of the county, liatón Reporter: Some newspapers and politicians have commenced agi tation for a short cainpaien in 189(1. From our point of view we regard the short campaign, when national Issue are at stake, as dangerous to the pub lic Interests. Ample time should be given to allow all to come to a conclu sion both as to the questions at Issue and if the record of the nominees Is such as to give a reasonable guarantee that he will act in accordance with the declaration of their platform. It is a big thing tosay but neverthe less true, that ;t great multitude of people have crowned Simmons liver regulator the "king of liver medi cines." There is nothing like It for malaria, rheumatism, chlllsand fever, constipation, biliousness, sick head ache, Indigestiou and all troubles aris ing from a sluggish or diseased liver. Simmons liver regulator Is the pre vention and cure for tiieso ailments. It took a mandamus from tlys dis trict court to make tho city council of Santa Ee levy n tax for school pur poses.
